Japan blossomed into its Renaissance at approximately the same time as Europe. Unlike the West, it flourished not through conquest and exploration, but by fierce and defiant isolation. And the man at the heart of this empire was Tokugawa Ieyasu, a warlord who ruled with absolute control. This period is explored through myriad voices-- the Shogun, the Samurai, the Geisha, the poet, the peasant and the Westerner who glimpsed into this secret world.

Comments about PBS Empires: Japan: Memoirs of a Secret Empire DVD:

I teach at a small liberal arts college and I used clips of this video in four of my classes. The visuals and narration are outstanding. The video is good for anyone who just wants to watch it straight thorugh, but if you need 2-3 minutes clips to break up a long class with an experience that will re-energize your students, get this video.

I was really impressed by how much information is packed into this video - information about how certain customs, rituals, items used, came into existance & their relevance for the time. Watch this video & you will see Japan with a new insight.
